Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.
⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️
It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.
Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: https://mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553570119536
@aral There's reasons any some poeple recommend it.
Downloading something to install on your system from a mass surveillance company's server IS NOT acceptable. Letting Mozilla collect a shitload of data, AND store it on Google servers, ijust to update an expired intermediate certificate is NOT acceptable either.
Not to mention the fact Debian's build has been compiled without "Studies" support, meaning the latter "solution" won't work on Debian.
